Based out of San Francisco, Rags was a counterculture fashion magazine founded by Rolling Stone photographer Baron Wolman with Barbara Kruger as art director. A rotating staff included Mary Peacock and Daphne Davis as editors. Rags combined countercultural street style and politics under the guise of a fashion magazine, expanding the genre at the expense of the mainstream brands that controlled it. Despite only running for one year, it remains an influential magazine whose innovative form and content were ahead of the time.
This set includes twelve of thirteen published issues of Rags, missing the final June 1971 issue.Nos. 1-12.
